Terry Van Duyn emerged victorious after three rounds of voting by a group of about 150 Buncombe County Democrats who picked her to replace the late N.C. Sen. Martin Nesbitt.
Democrats will meet tonight to choose who will fill the seat left open by the recent death of N.C. Sen. Martin Nesbitt.
There are now five Democrats seeking the seat.
The political sands keep shifting in this contest.
UPDATE: Buncombe County Commissioner Holly Jones has thrown her support behind Gunter.
